-- 'cause sometimes people don't understand that losing a companion animal is such a big deal -- and then, also, a really great way to celebrate the animals in our lives. >> besides writing, do you have any other advice you can give, particularly to teens, about coping with losing a pet? >> yes, definitely. in addition to writing letters, i think that what comes through in a lot of the letters that i've read that have been posted on the website is, people choose to get more involved with helping other animals as a way of remembering their own pets they've lost and moving forward and doing something positive -- so, whether it's volunteering at a local shelter or helping out with adoption services and maybe somewhere down the line, opening up your home to another animal who needs a home. these are all ways that we can continue to feel connected to animals and also honor the ones that we've lost. >> that's a good idea. thank you very much for speaking with us. >> thank you so much for having me, and it's always wonderful to be able to talk about pushkin in this way. and to the kids and teens
